Performing Arts2011-12 Performing Arts Series: SOWETO GOSPEL CHOIR 

Soweto Gospel Choir: African Grace

The two-time Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir is heralded as one of the most exciting groups to emerge in world music in recent years. Direct from South Africa, the Soweto Gospel Choir is an awe-inspiring vocal ensemble, performing in 8 different languages, in an inspirational program of tribal, traditional and popular African and Western gospel. Earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, a capella and charismatic performances combine to uplift the soul and express South Africa’s great hopes for the future. The choir enthralls audiences with mesmerizing harmonies and rhythms, while colorful costumes and choreography are a treat for the eyes. Since the Choir began touring internationally in early 2003, they have performed to nightly standing ovations, sold-out houses and rave reviews.
